✯REVIEW BLITZ:✯ Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan

Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan

Release Date: September 14th 2017 by Kendall Ryan
Genres: Romance, Adult Fiction

The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan...
She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide. 

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero. 

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

The story continues in Dirty Little Promise, releasing October 30th

Purchase: Amazon, iBooks, Nook, Kobo

My Review:

This was definitely a great start to the Forbidden Desires series, it was filled with angst and dark secrets to keep you reading until the very end. The synopsis and the cover were intriguing enough for me to want to read this book and while having read the first book in Ryan’s, Filthy Beautiful Lies series, Dirty Little Secret was different and exciting. 

Dirty Little Secret starts of by introducing Emma Bell, a head librarian whose previous relationship has left her questioning any other guy that might be interested in her.  After leaving an abusive relationship with her previous boyfriend, Emma has become more shy and often judges herself that makes her feel not wanted. When she gets glimpses of a sexy stranger at the coffee shop she frequents often, Emma suddenly finds herself wanting to know who the stranger is and thus the adventure begins when on one occasion he ends up leaving his business card in the tip jar knowing that Emma was going to be watching. Though their encounters are brief, that still leaves Emma wondering what he does for a living and what his personality is going to be like. This all changes when she finds out that the sexy stranger happens to be the CEO of Forbidden Desires, an escort service site and does the unthinkable by signing up to his company in order to get to know him without knowing that her life was about to change forever. 

Gavin Kingsley has it all, the money and looks to get just about any women he would like. With the help of his brothers, they are able to co-found Forbidden Desires, which has made them very rich. But that’s not what Gavin cares about, not when he gets a glimpse of Emma at the coffee shop. For months they have avoided talking to each other, but when he leaves his business card behind one day, he doesn’t expect her reach out to him until the very day she walks into his office that everything changes for him. He knows that he can’t share her with his other clients, but his brother makes an interesting proposition that Emma won’t be able to deny. It is this proposition that will leave her spending time with both brothers, but Gavin wasn’t expecting to develop feelings for Emma. Now he’ll have to decide if pursuing a relationship with her is worth it or not, especially when he knows that his past will eventually come out to haunt him. 

I very much enjoyed reading this book, this is definitely a different kind of story by the author, and I loved it. Gavin is a very secretive character who seems a bit careless at the beginning, but as he starts to spend time with Emma he starts to change a bit. Being the first book there is not a lot going on in terms of changes, but we do get to know the characters enough to keep us waiting for the next book to come. On the other hand, Emma is smart and kind. She has being through a lot and it’s understandable why she would not feel desired. It's a big step when she takes charge and decides to go meet Gavin, and what she gets out of it is not what imagined, but she is glad to be spending time with him. In the end, Emma is confronted with Gavin’s past and that is when the story ends. It's a huge cliffhanger that had me at the edge of my seat wanting to know what’s going to happen next. Kendall Ryan has managed to create yet another gripping story that will leave you wanting for more. I can’t wait to read the second book in the series, I would highly recommend Dirty Little Secret, you will not regret it! :)
